But there's a (big) caveat: the gratis maintenance service is in place strictly for devices suffering from battery issues, according to a leaked internal document. The repairs will be free of charge for Series 2 watches that will not power on due to the battery swelling.

To provide assistance to users, Apple is now offering required services for the aforementioned issues for free on eligible devices. What are your thoughts on Apple offering three-year of fix program for the Series 2 in 42mm size? The free fix only applies to Series 2 watches in the 42mm variant and that includes all models of this watch.

A line of code unearthed in Apple's latest watchOS 4.3.1 beta release suggests a future version of the operating system will allow third-party developers to deploy customizable watch faces, a feature for which many users have pined since Apple Watch debuted in 2015.

It's somewhat unclear as to what is covered under the memo's mention of an Apple Watch Series 2 not powering on.

Will you be taking advantage of Apple's revised service agreement?

Users on forums such as Reddit and Apple's support website have noted of instances where their Apple Watch battery seemingly expanded without reason.

This is a bit different than the temporarily discounted battery replacement program that Apple put into effect for some of its iPhone devices.

Apple Watch faces are mostly limited to digital or analog time displays and a choice of complications, with any new additions only coming from Apple itself and remaining under their control, such as the Disney and Pixar characters added past year.

Apple's stringent guidelines have not dissuaded attempts to install their own watch faces on the wearable. Let us know down in the comments!
